Burgers were delicious, fries were as well. This is an old style cafe with cafe food. It is on 6th street so there are lots to walk and see after you eat. Great place!!

I enjoy their burger and fries. Their wait staff are very prompt and friendly. I've heard great things about the cantina and the bands but not been in the evening

Working here from out of town and a local suggested this place. The burger was good, the beer was cold and the waitress was very friendly. I will be eating here again.
